Because I haven't posted anything in ages and nothing I have from the beach this weekend really fits with all those fancy landscape themes... I give you some boys with kites for +Beach Sunday curated by +Ross Campbell  #beachsunday   #goflyakite   #welcomespring   #lowtide   #longbeach

It'll be the most legitimate drink you've had all year, I promise.
Come out and join us next Monday in the +Bad Habit Room behind +Saraveza from 5 to 10pm, raise a glass to a truly worthy cause. 
Pfriem's Winter Ale, Squash Buckler from +Fort George Brewery, +Double Mountain Brewery & Taproom's Vaproizer, Ginja Ninja from +2 Towns Ciderhouse... We'll offer growler fills for the introverts who'd rather grab and go, awesome raffle and auction items for those who like to hang around and raise a glass to inclusive education for all our kids... #kegsforkids   #allmeansall

You all know we have beer... this year, thanks to +Hop-n-Grape in Longview, we also have some awesome wines!
Come on out on December 15th - we've got taps from +Fort George Brewery +2 Towns Ciderhouse and +Pfriem Family Brewers, some amazing auction and raffle items, and even a couple of great door prizes... it's going to be a great night.

You win +Elizabeth Hahn - #fivedayquest  starts here... don't all good adventures?

Today... we visit the watery grave of Wee Lightening McQueen, who found himself in the middle of a boywar, where the winner declared his triumph by flushing the tiny, shiny, red car away forevermore... #myhandswillneverfeelclean    

5 days / 5 photos / tag a new person each day to join
Each day we are to post photos of our lives and tag someone else into the giant photography pyramid scheme. Today I pick +Angie Smith  because she's awesome and doesn't make me feel old - plus she's got wicked dance moves... though Elizabeth says she's under no  obligation to play too... and for all I know she's 'in it' already'

I guess McQueen finally found a way to "get real gone."

March 21 is World Down Syndrome Day. 3/21 for the three copies of that pesky 21st chromosome that means instead of being "normal" you have "Down syndrome"... 
You also have a raft of special teachers and special doctors and special therapists and special specialists and special helpers that exist for the sole and exclusive purpose of normalizing your wellness, your abilities, your routines, your reactions, your skills, your functionality...but who wants to be normal, and what the hell does that even mean? 
I was never normal - and I'm pretty sure the lion's share of people I have found worthy of my time and attention on this journey through life weren't entirely normal either. The real secret of life is nothing to do with loving what you do or finding your zen place. It resides in the core of realizing that nothing is normal...and everything is amazing.
Nicky gives zero fucks. 
That is his power, and don't let your reaction to the f-bomb diminish it. He loves, he plays, he laughs, he runs, he learns, he screams, he tickles...he cherishes his interaction with everything ordinary and extraordinary all day long - and he doesn't care if you like it. He doesn't care if you like him. He just is who he is and he isn't going to apologize for liking NOFX even if that is "inappropriate" for a six year old. He also really digs the water park, despite being less than a fan of the bathtub. 
He is his own zen place. He is his own normal. And he is an absolute jewel for showing everyone, every day, that whatever they are, they're just fine.

It's four hours full of pretty cool stuff... I'm betting they might not notice (and still not 100% sure how long the walk really is :P ) - We're still a few people behind the other team for the competition - so anyone who's interested should totally jump on it and join #teampickles  NOW bit.ly/ZhgwQc

The race is on - We're building a team for this year's Portland Metro/SW WA Buddy Walk to benefit +Northwest Down Syndrome Association in support of local and nation-wide efforts to provide amazing resources for people with Down syndrome and their families...
Join us September 20, in person or online, we'd be thrilled to have your support.  #teampickles   #togetherwearemore   #weallbelong

Michael Bailey, my friend and mentor, offers the most obviously simple answer for one of those questions everyone seems to think is incredibly complex:
"What is so terrible about segregating people into specialised classrooms is that you have segregated people into specialised classrooms. That's what's wrong with it."

I'm so thrilled that +Northwest Down Syndrome Association  has finally put this online for all the world to see - because all the world needs to see it. Happy IEP season, folks... #weallbelong    #allbornin   #freeourpeople   #kegsforkids
